Saturday

nights are shorter in the city, and shorter

than antiquity. Whores and scores await

the night with bated breath, while bom-

bastic bellows from church bells call the

evening’s faithful and occasional to wor-

ship, or loiter. Sinners and sponsors crowd a-

round, awaiting the night’s final rites before

   slipping out to last call.
